October 2017


TRGC held its championship rounds on September 23 & 24 at Lincoln Hills (Orchard Course) and Teal Bend. Both courses were in pretty good shape, and all of us appreciated the mild temperatures for this time of year. We had lots of golf over the weekend--sometimes even really good golf. Mainly, we had close competition and lots of fun!

Brad Erway won the overall Club Championship by a wide margin. He hardly hit a bad shot for the whole weekend, with net scores of 67 and 70. Brad also had the lowest gross score total, but the same person can’t win both prizes, so that award went to Alan Staton with gross scores of 82 and 79. Congratulations to Brad and Alan on their impressive play.




Brad Erway and Alan Staton played spectacularly at their NCGA Senior Four-ball qualifier at Haggin Oaks, winning by four strokes over the second place team. Not all that momentum traveled with them to Poppy Hills on September 7 & 8. Their score was under par but left them in 20th place. Meanwhile, on August 31, Mike Morrow and Jeff Robertson played at Ancil Hoffman in the NCGA Associate Club qualifier. Mike shot a net -4 and Jeff shot a net -3. Mike thinks that both of them will move on to the next round but that hasn’t been confirmed officially yet. The finals are October 9th and 10th at Poppy Hills, right after our Reno trip.



Many of us are about to leave on the annual trip to Reno on October 6-8. Some slots are still available for the trip—contact Nick immediately if you’re interested. There is also an additional round at Grizzly Ranch on October 5th; contact Sandy Davis if you want to play this extra round.


Our last event for 2017 is the scramble at Bartley Cavanaugh on October 28, complete with lunch and the awards to deserving golfers for the year. This is always a fun outing for the club — mark your calendars.




If you have visited ourTRGC website at www.tworiversgolfclub.com, you can see all the progress that James Snyder has made. The calendar of events is now current with links to the tournament entry forms. He will continue to make progress as the season goes on. Thanks, James, for all your hard work.



As always, TRGC is looking to increase its membership base. Recruitment is the lifeblood of any organization, so be sure to invite your friends, co-workers, and golf buddies from other groups to meet our club. Don’t forget, you can take $5 off your renewal fee for next year for each new member you bring to the club (limit of five new members per person per year).



We’ve had some serious medical events recently. Jim Svobodny continues to recover from his kidney removal surgery. It was good to see him play in both club championship rounds, where he acquitted himself well.


Longtime TRGC member Leo Winternitz recently had rotator cuff surgery and will be out of golf for the rest of the year. We’ll look forward to seeing you in 2018, Leo. Basil Lobaugh continues to recover from back surgery; this type of surgery takes a long convalescent period. Basil stopped in after the first club championship round to cheer on his wife, Lee Ann, and to say hi to the rest of the club. Good to see you, Basil. Please remember our ailing TRGC friends in your thoughts and prayers.
